Belarus FM considers Russia is the target of destabilizing attempts

Minsk, (Prensa Latina) Belarus Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said on Monday that the final goal of those who try to destabilize his country from abroad is to prevent Russia from establishing as a global power.

The diplomat told RT television channel that the aim of those who organize the actions is to transfer the experience of what happened in Ukraine to Belarus and then, also Russia.

Makei said that Minsk cooperates with Moscow to counteract the attempts of foreign interference in the internal affairs of both countries.

The favorable results to Belarusian President Alexandr Lukashenko in the August 9, 2020 elections became the trigger of a wave of several months of protests in that country, despite his victory with 80.1 percent of the votes.

For her part, opposition candidate Svetlana Tijanovskaya got 10.1 percent of the votes, with which she denounced a massive fraud and demanded to repeat the elections, an option the Belarusian president ruled out.
